Forest Robes – Page 135 GM Guide
Before the Scourge forest robes were popular amongst the elf magicians of Wyrm Wood, Shosara, and other major elf settlements. Though most favoured by Elementalists the robes were worn by followers of all the magician disciplines. The robes take their name from the greens and woodland patterns that offten decorate them, and most are very highly crafted.
Typically the robes appear as been (three dimensional) as if one could reach inside and thouch the leaves, branches or roots used to decorate the robes, this gives the user a good camouflage in natural surroundings allowing them to blend in easily. Each robes looks slightly different from the next but all of them can be worn over armour without any ill effects.
These robes have an inbuilt scabbard at the back and front, the one at the back is large enough to hold a staff or sword, and the scabbard at the front is large enough for a dagger.
